The ancestors of the name Goodine lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The surname was a patronymic surname created for an ancestor of someone named Good. Thus the name means "son of Good." The name Good comes from the Middle English word "gode," meaning "good," in turn from the Old English "go-d," and was a nickname surname, one which originally referred to a characteristic of the person, before evolving into a hereditary surname.

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Ann Goodin, who came to Jamaica in 1684; Enoch Gooding, who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1766 with his wife and two children; George Gooding, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1685.
